  1. Microscopic Batteries for Use in MEMs

    SBC: BIPOLAR TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    One of the limiting factors in the operation of MEMS is energy transmission and storage. It is often necessary to transmit energy for a MEMS from some external source into the circuit, thereby suffering power losses which can be significant. The reduction of the power losses is therefore a desirable goal. The purpose of this work is to develop and build microscopic batteries (0.0001 cm2) which can ...

  2. Novel Synthesis of Fluorinated Parylenes for Low-K Interlayer Dielectric Applications in Submicron ICs

    SBC: Brewer Science Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    As IC manufacturers pursue larger wafer sizes and smaller device features (0.25 um), the interlayer dielectric material becomes critical . Current interlayer dielectric materials, inorganic oxides and spin-coated polymeric materials, have serious deficiencies (e.g.,k >3, water absorption, and spin coating defects). This has led IC manufacturers to search for low-k($6000/lb) has hampered commercial ...

  3. Optical Power Limiters


    Brimrose proposes to produce an improved material for optical power l miting at near infrared wavelengths to protect sensors against jamming and to build a prototype device. The proposed material, vanadium doped cadmium telluride, is relatively new and will be used to fabricate an electro-optic power limiter (EOPL). This approach of using a doped II-VI semiconductor for power limiting was first de ...

  4. Novel Photorefractive Time-Integrating Detector for the Radar Signal Processing


    Using newly developed II-VI photorefractive semiconductors as time integrator and high performance TeO2 acousto optic deflectors (AODs), Brimrose proposes to develop a compact RF signal processor useful in radar signal processing. The high sensitivity of this relatively new photorefractives, in the wavelength range of 0.63ym to 1.6,um, will allow signal processing using low power near infrared las ...

  5. Programmable Multi-Wavelength Detector Array

    SBC: Epitaxial Technologies, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Epitaxial Technologies proposes to develop the enabling material technology for the fabrication of programmable multi-wavelength photodetector arrays. We will perform material and device design to determlne suitable material structures and epitaxial wafer growth processes. We will investigate the use of compound semiconductor structures lattice matched to InP. The main goal of this proposed Phase ...

  6. A Novel Method for Manufacturing Low Cost, Large Screen, Wall-Hanging Plasma Display Panels Using a Novel Three Dimensional Camera

    SBC: TECHNEST, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Large-screen (over 35" diagonal length) wall-hanging displays have many applications in BMDO, such as flight simulation, command control center display, mission rehearsal and training, virtual reality environment development. They are also highly demanded in consumer electronics industries, such as high definition TV (HDTV), and electronic instrumentation. However, the current costs of most large ...

  7. A Novel Actuator that can Produce both Linear and Rotary Motions

    SBC: TECHNEST, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal presents a novel design concept to build linear and rotary uinchwormX type of actuators that can be used as active elements for static precision positioning and active strcutural dynamic control in BMDO's space structures and flight vehicles. The proposed actuator, call the Solid State Stepper Motor, exploits solid state Lead Zirconium Titanate (PZT) materials as the synchronized dri ...

  8. A Novel Omnidirectional 3D Camera for Battle Field Modeling and Reconnaissance Vehicles

    SBC: TECHNEST, INC.            Topic: N/A

    To the best of our knowledge, there is no existing battle field modeling or reconnaissance technology that can provide both the real-time three dimensional (3D) range information and the omni-directional viewing capability at any cost. The primary objective of this project is to fill this gap, and to develop a high speed and low-cost 3D image sensor with an omni viewing angle (i.e., 360 degree) fo ...

  10. Thermally Insulated Flexible Composite Cores for Aerospace Applications

    SBC: Infinite Materials & Products, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aerospace composite panels containing a core structure usually use an expanded honeycomb of either aluminum, NOMEX, or carbon fiber. These types of composite panels are often used as structure since the honey-comb core provides stiffness in the "Z" direction. However, they provide no thermal insulation value. Aerospace craft operating both inside and outside the earth's atmosphere experience envir ...
